Just let go
You didn't know me
I didn't know you
but to stop at that,
would have ended something so true.
We talked for hours,
you said you were crazy,
you said you were a mess,
That, I failed to see
'cuz every mess you apparently made
made you just more beautiful to me.
Hard times, we had both gone through
it really was holding us back,
but my mind wondered, "What if we just let go?"
"What if we don't let our past define the 'us' now?"
You smiled back at me,
I could just only utter a "Wow..."
Still there was something missing,
We couldn't figure what,
I said, "Don't overthink"
You replied, "Why not?"
I said, "When you think too much,
You put too much gears at work,
gears that were made to reason, not love
And when you try to reason in love,
It's just seconds wasted
'cuz love isn't a logic you define,
you just make it with your heart
and you just let it shine"
You said back, "What if we don't work?"
"What if this was not meant to be?"
though this time, I had no answer
'cuz even I feared what we'll become to be.
Then I thought,
A journey shouldn't be defined
by where it ends,
A journey isn't something you calculate,
It's just a trip that makes you wonder
"What happens next?"
And you know the funny part?
Everyone lives that journey
It just has a special name to it,
It's called life.
When you can enjoy the time you have,
When you can do whatever you want,
Why think of the inevitable?
It's just supposed to happen.
Everyone awaits death
and yes, it's scary
but letting my death set my life,
is even scarier.
